PRESS RELEASE-IRSP deny any knowledge of recent allegations

The Ard Comhairle of the IRSP has met in relation to developments over the weekend and hereby state confidently that neither they nor the wider Republican Socialist family had any knowledge of matters of human trafficking, extortion or prostitution.

Any individual engaged in such appalling criminal actions has divorced himself automatically from Republican Socialism and the IRSP.

Concerns around the sexual exploitation of vulnerable individuals stand above party politics, we call on those with information that can end such human suffering to provide it to which ever agency they see fit, confident that no criminal will enjoy shelter from Republican Socialism or the IRSP.

The IRSP stand with the oppressed in every situation, in particular we stand against the oppression of women and we distance ourselves totally from those who for personal gain dip their toes in the shameful waters of human exploitation.
